I am having problems with my Web Cam all of a sudden. When I click on it it says "Application failed to initialize check camera device and restart computer" I tried downloading a new update from Toshiba but the application never installed. I have a Toshiba Satellite L655-S5150 Windows 7, Laptop that is only 15 months old (thankfully I have the extended warranty, but who wants do a re-install?Previously, I installed the Kingsoft Antivirus and had it for a while with no problems, but I see this antivirus update has many new features and one of them is blocking my Webcam. I have since then unchecked the "block this program" for my webcam, but am still having non access to my webcam I can't use Skype or You-tube. What can I do to get my Web Cam up and running. After I unchecked the "block" box I was able to access my web cam for a short while, then once I rebooted no more webcam.
system 32, service pack 1, build 7601
Toshiba Web camera software 126.96.36.199
I looked in the Device Folder and didn't even see the Toshiba Web Camera Application or Device. Some people says to uninstall the device then re-install it, but I can't even find it.
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142) Click on OK to terminate the application.The only option is to click ok. I am deathly afraid to turn off my computer because my brother recently did and that caused it to freeze at the blue HP startup screen, but thats another thread. I get this error whenever I launch anything. I can't even open up the task manager. I really need help. I don't currently have a way to back up my stuff either but I am working on it. By the way, I don't know that my brother was having the same error message as i was or if he was having any error messages. I use zone alarm full security suite if that helps at all, I don't know if it deleted a registry file or something.
I am running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Sometimes, I start my system and, when it's fully up, click on an app (eg Firefox, Outlook, Word, Excel etc) in the taskbar as normal but sometimes they don't start - the timer shows then, after 5-10 secs, it stops & the app fails to open. None of them will open until I reboot. This seems to suggest a Windows, rather than installed SW, problem. It's happened on and off for some months now so I can't pin it back to some change in the past. How to diagnose - where would I dig out error reports for these events, if at all?
When I try to go to my computer I get an error (explorer.exe - application error. The instruction at 0x774bc5f7 reference memory at 0x48e44c59. The memory could not be read.) I ran my norton 360 scan and malwarebytes scan and no virus/spyware detected. Also I ran memtest to see if my rams were bad and everything seems find. I also try to do a system restore and it fails too.
I have a Sony VAIO with the code SVT13114GXS. My webcam was working fine, until I tried to update it from Arcsoft Webcam Companion 3 to Arcsoft Webcam Companion 4. Now, whenever I try to open it, there's a message saying: "Webcam not found. The webcam is either being used by another application or is not connected. Please click Connect button and try again."
Our office has an old program that we still need to use when upgrading our PC's to Windows 7. The program will run fine if you start a windows virtual PC and install and run it. However, based on the needs of our office, I need to be able to run Windows XP mode and simply have an icon for our users to click to take them to the application.If I install the program in windows XP mode, and then add a shortcut to the file under all users/start menu, a shortcut is placed in the appropriate place on the windows 7 machine and I can copy that shortcut ot the desktop. The program runs fine until you restart the computer. Once you restart the computer and double click the link on the windows 7 desktop to the program running in windows XP mode, it says:
Cannot start virtual application. The application is blocked from running as a virtual application.
I read some other posts saying to put a new shortcut in the all users/start menu folder. This works, but only until our users restart their computer. The next time the computer is up, the problem happens again. This is not an acceptable solution to have to create a new shortcut for each workstation each time the computer is restarted.
I have several old Western Digital hard drives with many files on them. I tried to access those files by connecting the hard drives using a IDE/SATA-to-USB connection that I bought for this purpose. The instruction said to put the jumper in the "Master" position.The HDD did not appear in Windows Explorer. However, the IDE/SATA-to-USB is recognized by Windows 7 and the hard drive appeared as "Disk X" in Control Panel's Disk Management with a note "not initialized". The HDD was spinning. Under "Volume" it also said not initialized. So, I tried to initialize it and a screen appeared with a check mark on MBR type. When I click "initialize" an error appeared "Device not ready".I changed the jumper settings but with the same result.The same results when I connected these HDDs with the IDE/SATA-to-USB on a another computer with Win XP SP2.What needs to be done?
The error states:explorer.exe - application error The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000022). Click OK to close the application.When I click OK, i just have a black screen. I can get the task manager going by hitting control, alt, delete. I've tried to start explorer.exe from the file menu, but get the same error.
I tried to replace 3 files in the system 32 folder, and must have made a mistake along the way leaving my laptop inaccessible once logged on. The three files were:
uxtheme.dll themeui.dll themeservice.dll
I received these error messaged when logged on:dwm.exe - Application error the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click ok to close the application.explorer.exe - Application error the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click ok to close the application.Can system restore revert back the files so it was like i never attempted the patch?
I don't what happened but all of a sudden a message box opens up on my windows 7 laptop and it says this " the application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application" . I clicked ok but the error message box keeps returning back.If i remember properly, this happened when I tried installing some wallpaper.system seems to be working finw with all applications, but this message box is quite annoying.
i have several programs that will not run properly and not sure why. Firefox says it cannot initialize the applications security component. i have tried the way that the firefox support has said to fix it with no success. so does anyone know what i have done to make several programs not start?
And now I am so screwed. I can't even open services.msc, I can't install an update, I can't run updates and I can't re enable anything because I can't get into services to do it. Please don't say system restore because I disabled it.
Was the message i got when i tried to play my freshly installed age of empires II game (with expansion). i have cruised the internet for solutions for my computer, i have re-installed game, done the whole compatibility pack stuff (including disabling themes and 256 colors stuff). i have updated driver and adapter, turned off adapter, changed screen size, done off with aero pointers and what not and i have run as administrator the whole time. i have also updated direct draw and ran dxdiag.exe thing, here it is[CODE]
Failed to initialize 3d rendering.What will i do? I speak english bad. More games doesn't open. Standart games too doesn't open.I installed the drivers for my notebook Asus g50vt,and DirectX,but it doesn't help.
I was just wondering if it is possible to reverse engineer a 32-bit application and recompile it as a 64-bit application. If so, would it still function?I don't know if talking about reverse engineering is acceptable in this forum or not. If not, my apologies.Also, I don't exactly know how "legal" it is or if it's against any EULAs.I'm a heavy browser user. I use Firefox Nightly and constantly have several tabs open. I also run several different applications at once and occasionally Skype. I'm CONSTANTLY hitting the 32-bit barrier for RAM (can't remember if it's 3.1, 3.2 or 3.3 GB) and I still have more RAM on my system. I'm thinking the video quality on Skype starts going south when I run low/out on addressable memory since it's a 32-bit application
I just got my laptop back from best buy, they had to replace a fan and apparently re load windows 7. All was fine and I began running windows updates. Eventually, the computer, while booting got hung up on one update (fatal error code c000003a). I restored the system to the earliest date and finally got to log on. Everything seems to work great now, except I noticed the windows aero theme was disables. I Hit the find out what's wrong with aero button and it didn't return any results. I also checked "services" and saw that"desktop manager session windows manager" was started and set to automatic, but when I click that and hit restart service, I get the same error. Before I got this error, I got a different one that said I was missing "dxgi.dll", I downloaded that and put it on my system32, just though I'd let you know. I'm running windows 7, home premium 64-bit.
Run-as local admin doesn't quite work. I also started the initialization process then gave the drive back to the user to finish formatting in NTFS. However, the HD is 2 tb and he only got to 10 mb before Windows 7 quits and shoots failed error.
I tested a friends graphics card in my homebuilt computer to see if it worked. I took my Ati Radeon 9800 Pro out, and put in this other card, and then replaced the other card back with my Ati Radeon 9800 Pro. Since then, I cannot get the drivers to work again for my 9800. I have Windows 7, 32 bit. I am positive that I did a fresh install of windows 7, not an upgrade. I cant remember if I installed specific drivers for my graphics card at that time, or if windows did it. All I know is that the card was running good, with two monitors running together. Everything stopped working after I tried my friends card out.
Ive downloaded so many Ati Catalysts, 10.2, 9.3, 9.1, 8.7, 8.1, and also different versions (XP and Vista) and none of them will work. Sometimes it will just say "The current driver is up to date" and its showing the standard VGA graphics adapter. Sometimes it will say "Radeon 9800 PRO installed, reboot now" then when I reboot, it will give me this error "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)" when I check device manager. Basically any driver I try will give me this error.Basically what I was doing was boot into safe mode, use DriveSweeper to delete all ATI files, then reboot and install different catalyst, then go through device manager to "update driver". Then I would get the error above.
My power supply on my old comp died, so it was time to upgrade computers, I went from running windows XP to windows 7 now. I saved my old "previously upgraded" 320g wd internal drive to recover the data to my new machine. I got an external drive enclosure, installed everything but windows is telling me I don't have "access" to the drive. When I go into disk management, it sees the drive but it's not initialized, nor will it let me initialize it when I try.
